Our expert says:
Depression can indeed sometimes be "about" sad aspects of your life, but often it arrives on its own, for largely chemical reasons. It may then discolour the way we look at our lives, and exaggerate the impression that life events are causing the depression, rather than the other way round.
Do, please, arrange to se a good local psychiatrist as soon as is practical, as this is a very treatable condition, both with meds like antidepressant drugs, and with a form of counselling called CBT, or both. The meds can take up to 3 weeks to show that they're being useful, but you could before long be feeling a whole lot better than this, which is what you deserve
